Seems that 3.0 had some issues, When I added OSP hairstyles, I obviously didn't test it and was causing a crash for male players choosing hair styles...

this mod could be int he top 5 if it wasn't so buggy. why did you abandon this ? it's a masterpiece

Been trying to upgrade a village but it kept saying I need a population of 300. Been trying to find out how to contribute to that (getting slaves, villagers, peasant women) but no promts to give them.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

The population will increase over time, it'll take a few in-game months. Make sure you complete as many quests for the village as possible and keep it's prosperity high.

Having a major issue and wondering if anyone has a way out with codes or whatever. I paid a old sea captain to take me from a western Scottish port to one in Northern Ireland. The ship sailed into a coastline and won’t move on. I exited and loaded it again and now it’s just stuck looking at the city I left from
And nothing I do seems to have an effect. Is there anyway I could manage to salvage this game so I don’t have to start a new one. I tried my backup save to no avail and am just stuck staring at....never mind IM FREEEEE, after button mashing for 30 minutes straight I’ve ended up back at the original port. IVE CONVERTED TO PAGANISM NOW. THANK WODEN! (I’m just gonna pretend I was trapped at sea for months and my crew died leaving only me and a few survivors.)

Thats why I make backups of my backup every 15-20 mins I backup diff backups so I have diff points I can start at like when I had a child I made save 1 day before birth and day after the birth and when he grew up I saved it there to on totally new save so all those will be on diff saves so anything important happens I always have a save before and after another example I save before I attack a town just in case I crash during it, so you should try that.

Good idea. Praying to the gods sadly doesn’t always seem to work when I’m faced with such foul magic. 😂😂😂

How do you use the assassins (mysterious men) and spies...

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

So what happens if you kill an enemy lord? Is it game ruining like in early bytenwalda?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I killed the king before if they don't have son or Daughter a Lord takes over the faction. As for killing a Lord I assume if they have a son or daughter they would take there place and fiefs. Also I think you lose renown for killing them.

If you caused a kings death and you were his closest relative. Would you become king?

I would pay for this as DLC. It's probably late beta as far as bugs go, but the content is fantastic :) The author started with vanilla. This is not a submod. Want magic? it's in there. Want a dark age era world free of magic, but full of danger and opportunity? it's in there! It seems like there will be further updates, so it can only get better still. After a few evenings play time since the 3.0 update I am lvl 25. I lead 286 men... a force that cannot be ignored in dark age Britain! My fief is…
